With Indian textile and clothing industry aiming to increase its exports to Japan, the government has decided to enter into an MoU with Japan Textile Products Quality and Technology Centre (QTEC) through the Textiles Committee to jointly set up and encourage quality compliance activities to comply with quality requirements of the Japanese market, the Textiles Ministry said.

QTEC provides facilities for quality evaluation, standardisation, technology evaluation, conformity assessment, technical guidance and education, factory certification for the textile industry of Japan.

In this regard, it was decided to extend helping hand to the domestic textile for better understand quality culture in Japan, particularly concerning textiles and apparels.

In this context, industry capacity building programme is being organised at nine major textile centres in India.

Joint Secretary in the Ministry of Textiles Subrata Gupta said that though India’s manufacturing capacity is enormous, its exports to Japan are very minimal in textiles. By changing the mind-set, India can compete with Japanese quality requirements and hence enhance quantum of exports.

According to Secretary, Textiles Committee, Ajit B Chavan, lack of awareness about the Japanese textile quality requirements is the major reason behind low exports to Japan.
